Today's Verse : Mark 8:36

What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his very soul? — Mark 8:36

Thought

We chase after so many different things. Only one thing is needful. Having a fist full of dollars, a great estate, and lots of prestige doesn't mean a whole lot if you've gone to your ultimate address without the Lord. Even worse is to find that in the middle of your busy-ness, you awake to find yourself in the barren land where Christ does not dwell and life is not found. Let's not lose our life, our soul, our meaning, chasing after what is not lasting.

Prayer

Father, help me to keep my priorities right, my life holy, and my heart open; to your will rather than being blinded by my own self-seeking. In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.
